First game of the season and god has returned to the fold. 

Our home game, and the G will be packed to the rafters with the riff raff from down the road, living in hope that all will be good again.

This single game may well define our season. 

Beat Geelong with the 3 amigo's playing, and the competition will take notice. 

And PJ will be more than happy with the gate takings....

And critically different to last time, this year up forward we have Tom ‘can’t miss’ McDonald.

They will be up and about.

Weve had some great wins in the last few years, but spoiling this party would top the lot.

We've got a more balanced and better team IMO and I'm confident we'll win.

That said... jeez that trio is possibly the best midfield trio ever assembled. Would've killed to have had even just one of those three play their career in red and blue!

As others suggest..round one is an absolute litmus test. 

Our ground...big occasion ...defined able competition. 

If we are who we now claim to be this should show what we're now able to do. 

Win this...bodes well

Lose...catch up footy here we come.

Geelong Shmeelong. Dangerfield is a toss, Selwood is a ducking idiot and Ablett is just plain weird. Plus Harry Taylor walks like he has something in his butt. 

I haven’t look forward to our opening game this much since 2013.

An impressive evidence based assessment Ethan.

My pleasure, it took a while to get there, especially after a dozen or so rums.

I'm confident we can slay some [censored].

No doubt we can score heavily.

I really hope we can put on a decent showing in this game. I know the big three is scary but we shouldn’t fear them.

Although the media will spend the lead up into round 1 pretending we don't exist, I think we're a massive chance to upset the Cats.

I still remember our last encounter where we looked likely all day but ended up kicking 19 behinds. Although we fielded a reasonably good side, we were without Hogan, Lever, Hibberd, Brayshaw, Lewis and Gawn (who tore his hamstring before half time). Plus we were expecting to get our goals from Sam Weideman and a first gamer in Tim Smith. 

Even with Selwood, Dangerfield and now Ablett in their midfield, their defence has lost Mackie and Lonergan. I'm not sure a backline led by Harry Taylor can contain the likes of Hogan and McDonald. Also, Motlop (although patchy in regards to form) provided some serious x-factor in their forward line and could add some dash to their midfield.

Saying that, I'm can't help but expect that someone like Wylie Buzza will slaughter us before fading into obscurity by the end of the season. Damn MFCSS

It’s certainly going to be an exciting game - win or lose - it will be a great contest!

Having said that, I’m hoping that Vince gets into Dangers head so that by hafl way through the first quarter, he’s dragged by the coach. Given the twos history, it’s likely to be a pretty scrappy affair early on, so whilst our big bodies (Bugg, Vince, Viney, Jones, ANB and Kent) are keeping the cats in check and wrestling, I hope our 2nd tier runners are smart enough to play on and give TMAC all the opportunities he needs to hurt them early. 

By half time, GAJ should have suffered a chicken wing from Viney and Selwood might have dropped his head a little too low and one time too many, onto an oncoming Frost Gigas, unfortunately rendering him unconscious.

Our class will sort out the rest of the afternoon and then the fans of the defeated will commence their long, awkward and uncomfortable pilgrimage on the highway back to Geelong.

Sounds like the perfect weekend really, better get down there!

I haven't been to one training session this preseason.

I watched the women slaughter the Crows, I am now getting my hunger back. In the past preseasons I used to be exhausted by the time the season started. Now I will be fresh and ready to go the full season.

I will have a run next week at the AFLX. A good showing on Friday night should tune me up just right.

Go No. 5?  Can't think of his name???LOL

Well judged Barney.

Unlike your good self i haven't a oz of interest in AFLX...strikes me as an unnecessary distraction in one breath..a total vvankfest in another.

Happy for the lasses to fly our flag and enjoy their footy.

I'll be more involved with actually be interested when the REAL stuff starts... All dancing with sisters til then.

Go Dees....bring on season '18

when I read the title of this post, I thought it meant our boys were going to earn 580 brownlow votes this year.

Then I realised 22 games times 6 votes didn’t quite add up to 580. 

We might come close though
